Trump accuses Comey of lying under oath in fiery news conference

Trump accuses Comey of lying under oath in fiery news conference

In response to Comey's stunning testimony, Trump and his lawyer have staked out an incoherent position.

"Frankly, James Comey confirmed a lot of what I said", Trump said, "and some of the stuff he said just wasn't true".

Comey also said Trump told him during a one-on-one dinner on January 27 that he needed "loyalty".

Trump faced journalists at the White House on Friday afternoon in a joint news conference with the president of Romania, a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation partner. Dershowitz went on to say that even if we don't like the President having that authority, he has that power and you can't turn a Constitutional power into a criminal act.

When Karl asked about the so-called "loyalty pledge" that Comey referred to, Trump denied that it ever occurred, saying "I hardly know the man, what kind of person would do that?"

I think anyone that hangs that hat on anything coming out of this administration is a bigger fool than that man running the country and I understand the proportion of foolery we are dealing with, which is why I want to make sure we aren't lead astray. Who would do that?. I mean, I will tell you, I didn't say that.

Besides, the model is also integrated with Intel HD Graphics 630, 2GB Radeon Pro 555 and four Thunderbolts 3 with touch bar . Moreover, the A10X likely consumes a fraction of the power that a high-end Core i7 inside of a 15-inch MacBook Pro does.

The committee has also sent a letter to Mr Comey, asking for any notes or memoranda in his possession that would describe discussions he had with Mr Trump.

"No, I didn't say that and I didn't say the other", he said.

A day after he had allowed surrogates to respond for him, Trump took to Twitter on Friday morning to attack Comey directly, writing: "Despite so many false statements and lies, total and complete vindication. and WOW, Comey is a leaker!"

"Mr. Comey's memoranda are relevant to the Judiciary Committee's ongoing investigative efforts".

Mr Flynn was himself forced out after misleading the vice-president about conversations with Russia's ambassador before Mr Trump took office. "He's everything that's wrong in Washington", Lewandowski said.

In his first congressional appearance since being abruptly fired by Mr Trump last month, Mr Comey detailed months of distrust of the president and bluntly asserted that the president had fired him to interfere with the probe of Russia's ties to the Trump campaign.

Deploying Trump's trademark bare-knuckle style, Kasowitz also suggested the ousted lawman should be prosecuted for leaking "privileged information". "If the White House's account differs from what we heard today, the American people deserve to hear the president's side of the story in a similar forum - under oath and open to the press".

The Russia investigations have consumed the White House and distracted the president and lawmakers from his governing agenda. Should they believe the G-man who once threatened to quit his job as a United States attorney on principle and whose former employees can't find anything bad to say about him? While Comey said he would welcome the release of tapes, Trump and aides refuse to say whether such tapes exist.

Sitting alone at a small table facing a bank of senators who fired question after question, Comey gave short, deliberative answers.

During a news conference with Romanian President Klaus Iohannis on June 9, President Donald Trump said he was willing to testify under oath in order to refute claims made by former FBI Director James Comey.

If there are tapes, the special counsel is duty-bound to subpoena them.

Previously, the USA had insisted the Qatar crisis wouldn't affect US military efforts in the Middle East. Last month, President Trump traveled to the Middle East where he met with Arab leaders in Saudi Arabia.

Comey said a decision was made not report to Sessions a February 14 White House meeting where Trump pressed the director to drop the FBI's inquiry into Flynn, whom Trump fired for withholding information about his contacts with foreign governments.
